Think about this VW ID.4 2023 or 2024

2023 VW ID.4 PRO S. 1 year this July of 24, 16000 miles. Before the latest software update of 3.1 or 3.5 we could the full state of charge was 300 Miles. After the update, the max SOC dropped to 253. But many software problems were fix. The 12V battery is stronger than the 2021 (they were updated later). Fast charge to 80%...

Great car so far!

We love this car! Comfortable, simple, quick. It even has a back massager on both seats! So far it has been all we could have wanted.

2023 Volkswagen ID.4 review: Our expert's take

By Mike Hanley

The verdict: The all-electric 2023 Volkswagen ID.4 has characteristic VW attributes, like a refined driving experience and well-built interior, but the automaker kept a good electric SUV from being great by going overboard with touch-sensitive controls.

Versus the competition: The dual-motor, all-wheel-drive ID.4 delivers good power, a comfortable ride, a spacious and configurable interior, and useful trip-planning technology that position it well against rivals.

It’s been a couple of years since we last reviewed the ID.4, and the competition has changed quite a bit since, with new electric vehicles entering the market. The ID.4 has changed, too, with a new, lower-priced version debuting for the 2023 model year and some significant changes coming for 2024 to go up against the likes of the Hyundai Ioniq 5, Nissan Ariya and Ford Mustang Mach-E.

Our test vehicle for this review was a Pro S trim level with all-wheel drive. Its dual-motor drivetrain is rated at 295 horsepower, and it has an EPA-estimated driving range of 255 miles on a full charge. Its as-tested price was $54,485, which included the destination charge but none of the state or federal incentives available for this vehicle, which include a federal tax credit of up to $7,500 for qualifying buyers.

How It Drives

The AWD Pro S trim comes with 20-inch wheels and tires, which is a setup that can result in an uncomfortable ride. The ID.4’s ride quality is livable but not always comfortable; you’ll sometimes feel a jolt in the cabin when traveling over a rough section of pavement. The SUV does manage to mostly avoid ride harshness, though, which is a testament to Volkswagen’s suspension tuning. The ID.4 rides considerably better than the brittle, busy Mustang Mach-E, but it’s slightly less comfortable than Hyundai’s Ioniq 5.
